Successful seminar on voluntourism
The ITRC has in recent years held an annual seminar where one of the current subjects of Icelandic tourism is given emphasis with short presentations and discussions. This year’s theme was voluntourism.
Most of the presentations were in Icelandic, one was given in English, where Dr Jessica Aquino, Assistant Professor at Hólar University College and Head of Tourism Research Department at the Icelandic Seal Center, gave a short lecture titled Volunteer Tourism and the Community's Voice: The Social Representations of Favela.
Recording of the seminar is available here.
